Networking primitives for TCP/UDP communication.
This module provides networking functionality for the Transmission Control and User Datagram Protocols, as well as types for IP and socket addresses.
TcpStreamprovide functionality for communication over TCP
UdpSocketprovides functionality for communication over UDP
IpAddrrepresents IP addresses of either IPv4 or IPv6;
Ipv6Addrare respectively IPv4 and IPv6 addresses
SocketAddrrepresents socket addresses of either IPv4 or IPv6;
SocketAddrV6are respectively IPv4 and IPv6 socket addresses
ToSocketAddrsis a trait that is used for generic address resolution when interacting with networking objects like
- Other types are return or parameter types for various methods in this module
Rust disables inheritance of socket objects to child processes by default when possible. For
example, through the use of the
CLOEXEC flag in UNIX systems or the
flag on Windows.
